Sounds like a corrupt iso image or downloadable files.

If the issue is with downloading the ISO then I would try a different browser.
I used IE but Firefox (http://www.firefox.com)  or Chrome (http://www.google.com/chrome) should be fine too.

Besides that the basic steps to install Windows 7 are as follows;

Download the Windows 7 iso from here.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/download.aspx

Then download imgburn from here.
http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
or here for a direct download
http://fileforum.betanews.com/download/ImgBurn/1128426215/1

Then start imgburn
Choose to "Write image file to disc"
Then click on the folder icon next to "Please select a file..."
Locate your downloaded iso and burn it.

Backup all files and settings.

Start your Windows 7 install!
